The meeting went exceptionally well; attendees would probably agree that this is an understatement. A press release is forthcoming.

Not sure if we actually met "deadite", although a few individuals came out of the woodwork upon recognition of our Corrupt, Inc. t-shirts. In case either of you gents belong to this user name: it was a pleasure to make your acquaintance!

no you didnt meet me, i did see someone with a corrupt.org tshirt, but that was from across the concert hall. by the time i was actually able to zero in on where you were, Immolation took the stage. thus...i was "distracted".  ;)

Second, I think Boredquin is right when he says that we should disregard the 95% who fail. 95% of seeds from a tree never germinate. 95% of all music has always been shit and should be ignored. What we need to do as those who love metal is to find that 5% and promote the hell out of it.

see thats what i am getting at.

though....wont the cycle repeat itself given enough time? i mean whats to stop 80% of THOSE bands from being crap, a few years down the road?

one can only live in the now. :-/

"Swansong" was such a radical departure from what Carcass had done before....i cant even take it seriously. its just so bad.

how can one differentiate which bands "play with conviction", Bordequin? honestly, while many people here find fascination in Gorguts' material, i would rather chop my ears off. there is no universal "this is good" stamp of quality.

i do agree that Origin are boring after a song or two, but my point is, how can one hope for the future of metal if so few people are actually willing to hope? and if you do not like what a band is doing? get off your internet high horse and start a band yourself. produce music you want to hear, and that makes you happy.

In that case, Origin is in the same league as Mortician. The only difference is their ability to play which means nothing if the music amounts to nothing. Why defend them? They don't play with spirit nor do they attempt to achieve something higher than playing DM for the hell of it. Go through the motions taken at an obnoxious extreme so typical concert going metalheads can jerk off to the fastest DM band in the world.

because there is talent there. instrumental talent. while their songwriting skills are extremely poor, there is enough talent to give hope that perhaps they could in the future write an outstanding album all the way through. they are still a relatively young band. extremely unlikely that this will come to pass, but anything is possible.

i do have to say, i enjoyed this album much more than their other post - "Chaosphere" work. that being said, it does feel empty.

but to be honest, the idea of Meshuggah being a cold, lifeless, soulless machine is probably the kind of atmosphere they were going for in the first place.

the problems in Israel arose after they formed. in several interviews in Israeli metal magazines the members professed to be openly Satanic (which does not bode well in a city home to 3 of the world's largest religions, all of which see a sort of "hell" in the afterlife). difficulties had them relocate to Amsterdam, as you stated.

their first album "As Jerusalem Burns..." is quite an interesting and adventurous listen. they, unlike more recent works of Nile, incorporate their Middle Eastern influence in their guitar work (also on later releases), and it makes their sound flow naturally, instead of sounding forced.

i also have "Sphinx" by them, and that is an accomplished work as well. however i still do prefer their first album. legitimate indeed, great even.

true. i suppose when looking at Origin's structure, it is apparent that it is very simple (straightforward blasting). still, that kind of thing i enjoy in spurts, once in a blue moon.

i take nothing away from them, as they are extremely accomplished and talented musicians. they just need to learn how to compose better.

A non-solution is worse than staying silent, don't you think?

Grindcore has a high burn-out rate, as does simplified death metal (Skinless, Origin, Cannibal Corpse).

There is a reason: futility.

I like the best of grindcore because it rose above this. Terrorizer, Bolt Thrower, Blood, Carbonized, Carcass.

The rest is a repeat of Hardcore, which blew itself out three years before. Why keep repeating dead cycles?

Origin isnt SIMPLIFIED death metal, theyre just too overtly technical. good for a song or 2, but i agree in that they get boring after about 8 minutes.

and i suppose it depends on the situation, but not everyone can stay silent all the time.

See Nietzsche's critique of catharsis. Why apply a palliative release when you could work toward a solution?

perhaps they are not aware of any solution that exists, or cannot formulate one on their own. sometimes it does feel good to release emotions in a violent sort of way. thats why i enjoy concerts highly.

no, they have riffs, they just prefer to drag them out as long as they can.

if they increased the tempo of all of their songs by about 100 BPM, they might be an interesting death metal band.

cheers for mentioning Infest! a true force in the hardcore/grind scene. very violent, angry band. i ignore the fact that theyre straight edge.

Wolfpack's "Lycanthoro Punk" is a great release. havent heard much else from them though.

personally, His Hero is Gone never did much for me. melody and crust punk dont belong together. i listen on some occasions, and mildly enjoy, but then i think that there is better music, and so i listen to that.

also worth mentioning is Spazz, if only for their technique and execution, because they were people who never took their band or themselves seriously. dont go looking for a message there.

good point DMBM. i was getting at the statement that no good hardcore albums came after 1985, and that AOQ was released in 1988 (or 87?). that was my whole deal.

its a fucking great album though. one of the best in the hardcore scene.

also seems metal RIP woke up on the wrong side of the bed today.

All grindcore bands seem to have an ideology somewhere between American Democrats and anarchists, usually impractical and mechanistic, the kind of liberalism that delivered us to the machine-state in the first place.

Even Godflesh was affected. Sad, really, because it's what got us in this mess, and it won't get us out, so it's like screaming/pissing into the wind.

i wouldnt say ALL. Misery Index seem to have an apathetic viewpoint. i know Magrudergrind and Insect Warfare wouldnt care if nuclear war erupted tomorrow. but a lot of grind bands share this viewpoint.

their advantage over the big politicians, in my eyes, is that they are challenging convention, and do not seek to please mainstream audiences. though in doing so sometimes they end up trying to please the underground.

still, grindcore remains my favorite genre of music, right behind thrash metal.
